A completed HCP results in a final product, such as a paper, a portfolio, an original artwork, a computer program, a video recording of a performance, etc.

Eligibility: Honors Notation requires grades of B+ or higher on the additional work completed beyond regular class work.

Students must earn a grade of B or higher in order to receive an Honors notation on their transcript.
